The Coronavirus pandemic has affected and impacted everyone. Some people may simply not want to admit it; however, it has affected each person in a specific way [1]. Children had to stay home from school and learn virtually. Parents had the additional stress of going to work, during the pandemic, and finding safe ways to collaborate with others, in order for companies to remain open and provide their services to customers. This pandemic has affected all; however, one age group was affected the most. This age group [2] includes all children. Children have been affected, primarily, in two ways, physically, as well as mentally. This article has the purpose of analyzing the effects of the pandemic that were imposed on children and helping others gain full knowledge. Having the full knowledge of these effects will help individuals to decide for themselves, the extent to which this rapidly spreading virus affected the next generation.
